The tandem officially qualified this week thanks to the fact that Nicolas Mahut and Pierre-Hugues Herbert qualified via points. That means that Polasek and Dodig gain entry per the Grand Slam winner rule.

This year’s Australian Open champions are the fifth team to qualify for Turin, joining Mahut and Herbert, as well as Nikola Mektic and Mate Pavic, Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury and Marcel Granollers and Horacio Zeballos.

Dodig will make his seventh appearance at the ATP Finals, while Polasek will make his second.
